Margarita With A Straw says
Shonali Bose, 2014, India, 98 min; in English & Hindi with subtitles

Beautiful Laila has a loving, devoted family and she attends the University of Delhi where she writes lyrics for a rock and roll band. She falls in love with the lead singer who, as lead singers do, breaks her heart. Not to worry, Laila has another suitor. Ah,
but she breaks his heart. She moves to New York and finds herself involved with a woman she meets at an Occupy protest. Just another story of budding adulthood, right? But Laila has cerebral palsy and is wheelchair bound. Does that change the story?
Surprisingly, not much. Indian superstar, Kalki Koechlin embraces the role of Laila and delivers a vibrant, yet intimate, performance that makes a lasting impression. Filmmaker
Shonali Bose’s (Amu) second film is certainly a consciousness raiser, but it is not sermon. Rather, it is a delicious sip of something new and immensely satisfying.
